Last month, the University of California, Davis, released the results of a study where one group of people watched a video about the effects of UV exposure on skin's appearance, and another group watched a video about how it can cause skin cancer.
The group that saw how wrinkly and spotty the sun could make them started wearing sunscreen much more often. The group that learned about skin cancer? Meh.
Some people may say that vanity being the driving factor in wearing sunscreen is kinda sad, but I say, hey, whatever it takes.
And if a sunscreen product being freakin' adorable motivates you to wear it, YAY!
Murad Essential-C Sun Balm is pretty much the cutest sunscreen in the whole wide world. It looks like a tiny deodorant. Not many things are cuter than tiny deodorant.
Remember how Maria was singing the praises of Mustela Hydra-Stick, and then I chimed in to sing the harmonies? It looks a lot like that, except it has three sun-filtering ingredients: avobenzone, octisalate and octocrylene. I realize those sound like three best-buddy villains, but they are quite the opposite of villains in that they will save you from dying.
And also from looking like leather.
